Turning Points

The theme for our Trinity lessons this year is “TURNING POINTS”. This study will offer us a look at some of those moments in scripture when a person (or people) had a choice that would not only determine what happened next, but for many of them the rest of their lives.

The premise which leads to this study is based on some of the life-lessons we learned in our “This New Life” Easter series. Having been sanctified by means of the resurrection, we are empowered to make Godly choices according to the Spirit’s gift of faith. However, having that ability does not always guarantee we make the right choices. This study is meant to show us both the blessings and consequences of our choices, and God’s love for us in both.

John 21:20-23

When you come to those turning points where you can either follow your own will or God's, may you submit your will to His, stay focused on what Jesus has done for you and be with Him!

Sometimes the Old Ways are Best

Exodus 23:16

Saying "thank you," from the heart, is not just the old way, it's God's way!


Mark 10:48

Jesus, who has the power to do what we need, also has the heart to do it for us. He gives to us His miracle of mercy.

No Turning Back

John 6:66-69

Once you know the truth of God's Word, you know that it's not only worth dying for, but living for!

Jesus Heals a Short Man

Luke 19:8

May God empower us to tell everyone we can that Jesus is waiting to come into their hearts and homes - just like Jesus did for this short man.

Obstacle or Opportunity?

John 4:9 & 19-20

In a world that loves to hate, only Jesus is able to build a bridge of love between God, us and each other!

Finding the Courage to be Honest with Ourselves

John 2:13-25

We often allow our hearts and lives to be ruled by fear. Don't just live, forgetting Who made us alive. Find the courage to truly live and enjoy the blessings He gives us. Live the truth and share that truth with the world.

Robbing God or Robbing Ourselves?

Malachi 3:6-12

It's not really about what's been in our hands, but what is in our hearts.

Smarts or Hearts - Making Better Decisions

2 Chronicles 10:8-11

Decisions not only have a major affect on us but on those around us. It makes sense then that we'd want to find the most efficient way to make Godly decisions. It turns out it's not either or. It's smarts and hearts.

Life Is a Battle, Fight!

1 Chronicles 21:1-2

Instead of sinful pride, replace it with Godly confidence, thanking Him for our gifts and talents, and for those things which we, by His grace, accomplish in this life.

Is God to Blame?

1 Chronicles 13:12-14

The Blame Game comes naturally for us. Thankfully, because of Jesus, we're free to respect God, practice our faith and leave the blame game behind!

Contribute or Commit?

Ruth 1:16-17

May the Lord help us to treasure all the people in our lives - to do far more than simply be passive actors in the lives of others. May He help us to commit ourselves – first to Him and then to each other.

Rise to Your Role

Judges 4:8-9a

Every day we face a turning point. Step forward in faith and see how God can bless you in this life before He hands to you the gift of eternal life - be encouraged to rise to your role.

Moldy Bread

Joshua 9:14-15

Trust God and His Word when making decisions. Everything the world offers is just moldy bread.

The Right Question

Deuteronomy 1:22-24

Trade the negative of fear for the positive of faith!

Our Real False god (FA)

Exodus 32:1-4

Some masks & coverups are fun. Others are damaging.

Using Good Judgement


Moses received wise counsel from his father-in-law in today's study of Exodus 18:24-26. Pastor Krause directs us to Solomon and the Book of Proverbs for some guidance in making good decisions.

Practice Makes Perfect

Exodus 14:10-12

Don't look at the new problem as something you can't deal with. Recognize it as an opportunity to practice trusting God because "practice makes perfect"!

One Plus One

Genesis 29_26-28

Like Jacob, God comes to us with His tremendously loving heart, allowing these turning points in our lives to teach us this truth, it's better to trust in Him than ourselves!

Trust Fall Exercise

Genesis 12:10-13

When you face that "turning point" moment this week, try this.... trust God!

Rule, or be Ruled!

Genesis 4:3-7
